Most minutes played: It’s not surprising that goalkeeper Jiri Pavlenka played the most minutes for Werder this season (2,909). The Czech international only missed the game against Borussia Mönchengladbach and had to come off injured in the home match against FC Augsburg. Striker Marvin Ducksch was only on the pitch for 46 less minutes than his goalkeeper, and played in every single league game, just like left-back Anthony Jung. The only outfield player to play every single minute this season was SC Freiburg’s Matthias Ginter.
Marathon runners: Marvin Ducksch ended the season with the most distance covered for a Werder player (327 kilometres), 4.9 kilometres more than Anthony Jung. No Bundesliga striker ran further than Ducksch this term, who ranked 20th overall for most distance covered. The league leader in this regard was Köln’s midfielder Ellyes Skhiri (393.6 kilometres).
The sprinters: Mitchell Weiser and Eren Dinkci both recorded the fastest speed for Werder players this season (35.1 km/h). Dortmund’s Karim Adeyemi registered the top speed in the Bundesliga in 2022/23 with 36.7 km/h, fending off competition from Union Berlin’s Sheraldo Becker (36.6), FC Bayern’s Alphonso Davies (36.5) and Bayer Leverkusen’s Moussa Diaby (36.5).
